$25 for a 5K Graffiti Run Entry for One ($50 Value)

On Sunday, April 14, runners will swarm the Sam Houston Race Park for the Graffiti Run. Armed with a race T-shirt, headband, and color packet, runners dash, dance, prance, and skip along the 5K course with the goal of finishing in the most fun and colorful way possible. Children under 6 can run free with a parent.

The first wave begins at 9 a.m., and groups of 500 runners will be released every 20 minutes afterward until everyone has had time to enter the course; runners should arrive by 8 a.m. to get ready. After the race, runners can stop by air-blown cleaning stations to remove some of the loose color powder, though most people also bring towels to protect their car seats on the ride home.

The Graffiti Run

The creators of The Colorful 5K use the term “run” very loosely. Less of a race, and more a celebration of the human spirit, The Graffiti Run encourages participants to dash, dance, prance, skip, cartwheel, or walk the course as they douse each other in vibrant hues that span the full spectrum. Each run also donates a portion of proceeds to a local charity, which range from Special Olympics affiliates and scholarship funds to city cleanup and beautification projects.
